I have been a keen photographer since the age of 15. My first film camera was a Pentax KM. I moved on to Minolta and Agfa but later settled with Nikon. I have owned several film Nikons. The Nikon FM, FE, F2a and F3 got me through the following 20 years.

As digital cameras came into vogue I stayed brand loyal for a while anyway. I bought a D70. It gave way to a D200 and then my first full frame in the form of a D700. Then I went off piste and dabbled in Sony, Olympus, Fujifilm and back to Sony again. At the end of the day I have come full circle with acquiring the Nikon D850. I have supplemented it with several top notch lenses and filters for landscape.

Just recently I took the plunge and brought a totally different but complimentary animal into the stable. I am now the proud owner of my first Leica. The Q-P is just what the doctor ordered. I love it and love using it. I visited the Leica factory last summer in Wetzlar, Germany. That put me over the edge and forced me to save my spare change.

I use a Manfrotto carbon fibre tripod and Lee Filters.
